December Cross-Canada Blog Hop - Gift Giving!

Welcome to our December Blog Hop featuring creations  that we plan to give as gifts this Christmas.   To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle Stewart at If you came from Chantal of It's a Hoot Paper Crafts then you are in the right place!

Gift Container

I used the following Close to My Heart products to create this beautiful gift container. It can be used for all sorts of things such as cookies (be sure to put them inside a Ziploc or in wax paper), treats (like hot chocolate mix inside a Ziploc or dry cookie mixture in a Ziploc along with the recipe), you can use it to create a memory jar (put slips of paper inside and ask everyone to write a favorite Christmas or winter memory), put recipes in it, and so much more!

My Creations Kraft Container Z1833
Frosted Paper Packet X7175B
Frosted My Stickease Assortment X7175C
Frosted Assortment Z1890
Slate Polka Dot Washi Tape Z1817
Bonding Memories Glue 1512
3-D Foam Tape Z1151

This project was fast and easy to make and it's gorgeous. The person you give it to can use it for anything!

To order any of these products, please visit my website at, email or call me!

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Karen of Clearly Precious.
 If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, , as she has the complete blog list.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. Join us again in the New Year when we will be featuring some of the products that will be retiring, so if you see anything you would like to create, this could be your last opportunity to purchase them.  We hope you will join us again on January 15th, 2014.

I also want to invite you to my next Scrap 'n Stamp Retreat in Canmore, Alberta on March 28-30, 2014. Contact me for more details!

Merry Christmas!

  1. Fantastic, I love the containers......I was going to make some for the teachers but my order didn't arrive in time for me to get them delays.....but that happens this time of year.

  2. So beautiful Nancy! The recipient is very lucky.

  3. Very beautiful Nancy, I now have some ideas on what to do with my container.

  4. Thanks everyone! I love it too and think I'll make one for me as well! My hubby and I are hosting Christmas this year (maybe 25 people here) so I think I'll use ours to ask everyone to write a favorite memory on a slip of paper and every year we can read them.

  5. Cute container. Really like the row of trees along the bottom.

  6. Beautiful! And I love the idea of making it into a Christmas Memory Keeper.
